I like the humor that they add to the broadcasts and I honestly don't mind Goldy sounding half drunk most of the time. I enjoy how they sometimes go off topic it makes a boring fight watchable.

Being realistic neither is going anywhere. Now my suggestion would be to bring back Randy at least then he can be insightful and take air time away from the other two.



I agree with all of this. Realistically neither of them are going anywhere. However if I had my choice I'd throw Goldberg out of there like what should have been done along time ago and replace him with Mauro Ranallo because the man has so much energy and so much love for the sport, with great intelligence about it where Goldberg just states the obvious and sometimes even fails at that.

Also Joe & Goldberg get a little dull sometimes, get a little quite. Whereas I don't think I've ever heard a boring telecast from Mauro. He's always keeping the conversation interesting even if the fight sucks.

I definitely agree with bringing in a fighter to help them too. Kind of like what HBO & Showtime do with boxing, having Tarver & Roy Jones sitting there with them. Randy or Frank Shamrock would be fantastic for the job as they have proven time and time again.

Id gutted if Joe Rogan left, i think he is a great commentator and I love his enthusiasm, he if a true fan commentating on a sport he loves. I personally find Goldberg irritating and I hate all of the errors he makes when quoting facts. Id be happy to see him gone.

Hell no! Mauro Ranallo is the absolute worst! Everytime that man speaks I have an urge to physically assault him!

I think they should bring back Bruce Beck and Jeff Blatnick from the old UFC days.

you know Blatnick was one of a MAJOR influences on the Unified MMA rules, he came up with most of them when they were trying to get MMA sanctioned.. he was also the man that coined the term Mixed Martial Arts

but he was a pretty bad comentator

I don't know how Goldberg could be considered a reasonably good commentator. Has he ever inspired you with his words? Has he ever walked you through action in a fight? Or has he made you cringe at the things he says?
